On Thanksgiving, Tomi Lahren shared a “food for thought” tweet that included an image of Colin Kaepernick digitally inserted into a photo of D-Day. Kaepernick was kneeling to illustrate her point yet again that what he’s been doing is unpatriotic and disrespectful to the American flag.
But the Fox News contributor couldn’t have shared this at the worst time. Kaepernick, who GQ named Citizen of the Year, has since become an inspiration for NFL activism and national anthem protests. And Twitter felt strongly about her attempt of putting down Kaepernick and went in.
Lahren went viral last year for her “Final Thoughts” segment on The Blaze when she vehemently condemned Kaepernick for his message.
“What’s your contribution? Sitting there like a fool? What’s selfish is you, buddy. And what’s your message to black kids, to people of color? That their biggest contribution to justice and self-fulfillment is to parade around with a chip on their shoulder like a victim?
“Colin, how dare you sit there and blame white people for the problems in the minority communities? After all, aren’t you half white? Didn’t two white parents adopt you after yours weren’t willing to raise you? For a racist and horrible country filled with racist and horrible white people, that’s really something, isn’t it?”
She’s not going to stop anytime soon, but judging from this reaction, it looks people have had enough.
